Reasons to be cheerful number one ....
Hearing my son give me sound advice and remembering as I later pottered that I had said similar words to him a few years ago :)
Reasons to be cheerful number two....
My husband saying, "I'll be home early tonight," and realising that even after all these years such a simple statement can still make me quite giddy with pleasure.
Reasons to be cheerful number three....
Being able to help a friend ; re-hemming a skirt for a lady who has badly arthritic hands. I slowly sewed, a bit clumsy at first, listening to a gardening programme realising that this is the first time I have sewn in an age and also realising this must be the fullest hemline in all the world! There is something very therapeutic about the rhythm of a simple hemming stitch.
The best and most beautiful things in the world
can not be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.
